Join Dr. Adovasio on an Insider Tour of the Meadowcroft Rockshelter. 

Enjoy an exclusive Insider Tour of Meadowcroft Rockshelter with James M. Adovasio, Ph.D., who achieved international acclaim with his archaeological excavation of the Rockshelter when work first began at the site fifty years ago. Dr. Adovasio will present a lecture and lead a special tour of the site.

Recognized as the oldest site of human habitation in North America, the Rockshelter was used by the region’s earliest inhabitants more than 19,000 years ago. The National Historic Landmark features a massive rock overhang used by the region’s earliest inhabitants for shelter as early as 19,000 years ago. Meadowcroft was named one of the “Five Great Places to See Evidence of First Americans” by Smithsonian magazine.

Dr. Adovasio’s presentation begins in the Visitor Center with tours of the Rockshelter to immediately follow.


Insider tours of the Rockshelter with Dr. Adovasio cost $30 for non-members and $15 for History Center members. Please register in advance online to reserve your spot.
